George Best. Holy Roller.

“I spent 90% of my money on women, drink and fast cars. The rest I wasted.” George Best

We all know that George Best had a weakness for lifes big vices. Women, booze and fast cars. Well an opportunity has arisen for you to buy into a little of that Best excess. His 1972 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is up for auction. We feel that these motors are a little undervalued. The one owned by Mr Best is expected to fetch around £15,000 and in our view it is a steal. The leather inside is all original which means you will be in the same seat that the great man once rode in.

Unsurprisingly the Silver Shadow isn’t the cheapest motor to run. This particular cars has had £22,000 spent on it. But they tend to be good daily drivers (chauffeur optional). So trade in that Golf you’re driving and get yourself down to H&H auctions on October 12. It might be the only chance you have of following in the footsteps of George Best.
